Monica has spent her almost her whole life doing movement. For fun, work and healing.
Born in Vancouver Canada, she began ballet training at 10 years old. Performed Classical Ballet for two years then re-trained in Modern Dance, performing and touring for 10 years all over the world with the Toronto Dance Theatre. When a herniated disc ended her dance career Monica trained in a Postural Alignment Technique called the Mitzvah Technique (MT), very similar to the Alexander Technique. For over 15 years teaching MT group classes and private table sessions in Toronto was Monica’s full time job. Early in her dance career, to help relieve pain and pressure from a conditioned ballet body, Monica also studied Yoga and has been practicing ever since.
After moving to Manchester 5 years ago from Canada Monica now offers private table/exercise sessions in Remedial Massage and the Mitzvah Technique. And teaches therapeutic, meditative style yoga classes. Most recently Monica is practicing Pilates and studying meditation.
Monica teaches classic Mitzvah Technique Postural Alignment but the classes are influenced by her dance, anatomy training, yoga and meditation.
